What a bright bush against the grey.
I've no idea what it is.
We weren't sure whether they were berries or flowers.
It turns out they are flowers,
the petals are quite hard.
The weather has been quite grey,
damp and wet at times,
so the bright bush was a nice surprise.
On Saturday (13th November) we joined our friends who were celebrating St Martin's Day.
We arrived too late to see the horse and a procession through the streets.
All the children had made lanterns,
and there was a large bonfire down by the river.
The drum on the right of the picture is evidence of a band,
though we must have missed that as well!
We were eager to try these doughy pretzels.
All the children got one each.
Our friends got some for us,
but they were quite filling,
and covered in sugar.
